The head is larger than the previous figures. And looks better. HT always had undersized heads in the past.
I agree. I think the DC 10 was perfect, the DC 13 seems a bit big, but it may just be the round hair that makes it look big. I never got in to Hot Toys before these because they seemed "pin headed"

the mms really does look pinheaded when next to the dx13 its starting to annoy me lol

Is there any knock off heads yet to upgrade the mms? Would like a clean sculpt. plan to play with my terminator collection over the weekend :)

Also really feeling the need to pick up a spare body now to display damage mode

Sure, but I search a picture that shows the differrences and the information how big is a head in cm?
For a long time,in this thread was a comparison picture between the Tech Noir T-800 and the DX-13.

I dont buy a Hot Toys fugure, so I can not imagine this.

and the information how big is a head in cm?if you search any HT item on ebay, there is 50% chance that some responsible seller made a photo with a liner.

People tend to exaggerate it and pose the figure like he's sidestepping through an extremely narrow passageway. As you can see there though he's walking forward with only a slight twist of his torso.

Also notable is how uneven his hair is. If only Hot Toys wouldn't sculpt it so ****ing neat and round.

You bought a new base on ebay?Ive nothing found there.

And the batterys are not the problem.I tested it.The batteryholder and the switch are ok.The problem is,that the LEDs are broken.I think they used the wrong LEDs for this high tension..and with the time they are going dead.The good thing is,that they used normal 5mm LEDs...so its not a big thing to remove the old ones.But its really a big thing that the quality of the base is so bad...Ive payed for a lightup base..and now I must repair it after only one day.:dunno:(

I've got my fingers crossed that Hot Toys may revisit the Endo in 1/6 scale in the near future.

I think it's bound to happen, all they gotta do is shrink their 1/4 (and I remember some time in the past year we saw some pics of a Hot Toys office workshop with a lot of figures on a desk and among them almost in the shadows was a 1/6 Endo (not the old one)).

It's a matter of time.

It happens both around the initial reveal of the figure AND then when you actually have the figure in hand - ''Amazing!''.....''well...actually this part could be better, and while I'm at it so could that...godammit why couldn't they have - 2.0 please Hot Toys'' :lol

I know, I was talking about you:lol

Though I did go though that with the DX10, I was happy to get the new sculpt updated from the proto, liked it for a while, then I started to notice all the things wrong with it to the point where it became my least favorite T-800, still a decent figure but I never really look at it anymore.

It was a woozer when I unboxed it, but after a while, I something about the figure just didnt look right. I enjoyed the real leather on the DX10 more.

To each his own and whatnot with the rainbow robots. :wink1: A curious POV on the DX13 becoming underwhelming though. It's generally considered the top of the line. Some would switch with MMS136 T1 and I would agree that those 2 are the top Terminator figures produced by Hot Toys so far.

I might considering keeping the DX10. Strangely I preordered the T1 battle damaged T800 already. I always wanted that T1. Only reason why I shelled out for one was Because I had $170 worth of those holiday points give away awhile back. So my cost for that figure is basically 160-170 shipped. I dont think SS gonna do that again this year. Its too much of a loss for them.

Side note, I might wanna sand down the jacket on the T800 DX13 to take away that shine and texture on the jacket. If I decide to keep it.

Absolutely Agree with this, MMS136 and DX13 are the best of the terminator line:goodpost:

Ironman is cool too, I got tired of them due to the overwhelming about produced and sold off the few I had, but after not having an ironman in the collection for a while I decided to pick up a few of my favorites.

Everyone has their opinions. What is underwhelming for me, is not for a lot of people. I am the minority but so what? To say that collecting is pointless is kind of far fetched. Though its underwhelming for me, I agree it is the best T800 to date. There is no competition. I personally still enjoy the DX10 a bit more. But hey thats my personal preference.

Also I collect Hot Toys other lines such as Predator, Iron Man, and Captain America, etc. My point of view on this single figure should not single me out of Hot Toys.

what is cool in that generic tinman?
no really. what?


Some time ago the terminator had to take a s***t.. It came out as iron man... Unfortunately it started to have a life on its own and started duplicating.. Like a virus :(

I can't work out whether this is supposed to be the BD T2 T-800 thread, an iron man thread, the 'buy/sell' section or the 'want to trade' section. Take your Iron Menz and your Premium Membership-dodging classifieds and sod off.

Looks great! If you could achieve that constant power source to light up the eyes it would be even more SuperB.... Something like that with a remote control added to turn on the eyes and the base so you wouldn't have to mess with the figure... That would nail it [emoji41][emoji41][emoji41]

Finally got this guy! I am so glad I did! The detail is incredible. Now the question is do I seek out the T-1000 or hold out hope that it will get re-released?

a-dev
08-09-2014, 12:40 PM
I feel inclined to think that they will neither make another T-1000 or rerelease the old one.

Just my feeling but at this point I'd say we'll get the die-cast 1:6 endoskeleton they talked about before, maybe the 1:4 Police Shootout T-800 figure they teased long ago. At a push they might make a Kyle Reese but I'm starting to really doubt that.

The superhero thing is just too big now and will be for a few more years.

DiFabio
08-09-2014, 12:43 PM
And if they did make another T-1000, I doubt it would be all encompassing like the last one. They'd probably just go with one look instead of offering all of them in one, luscious gift package. They just don't put that much effort into regular releases anymore.

If they happen to go that extra distance, something like this that was once $170,


http://www.hottoys.com.hk/photos/PD1340169363nCh.jpg



Would be $300 now.

Remember how that blew the mind. Don't think we were fully sold on the likeness but we never thought HT would pack in so much stuff. They thought of almost everything. One thing missing was a left hand sword-length stabbing finger. Other than that?

Marine Boy
08-09-2014, 01:05 PM
Very unlikely they'll be another T-1000, as the 1st release covers everything. I bought a 2nd body and head to display him on a bike.

DiFabio
08-09-2014, 01:07 PM
Then the fact that they offered that cool donut head with the exclusive T-1000 as Sarah really acts as a reminder of how far they'd go for a non-Iron Man, Nolan Batman, Marvel license. To date, I don't think they've ever included a special variant head with another figure (that isn't even compatible for that figure), with the sole purpose of be included with another release.

Today? They'd never do that. If Terminator was as popular as Iron Man or Nolan Batman dolls, it might take 3-4 releases to get all the looks for T-1000. We essentially got that in one to two releases for an awesome price, hard to believe. The fact that we actually got the motorcycle look makes me appreciate my Terminator collection. They could have easily nixed that back in the day.

Yep, it's neat to have but it's the easiest of exclusives to live without. The standard head looks better on the T-1000 statue, anyway, and to be able to get this set at 10% less than retail is a great deal.

I actually use the T-1000 but not the way it's intended. If you turn him to the side so you can't see the hole in hands, have him behind Arnold and turn his head so he's looking at Arnie it looks like he's sneaking up behind the Terminator about to club him in the back of the head. It works for me since I don't have the actual T-1000 figure.

I believe he is on long pegs if I remember correctly, but the height seems right to me, I believe all of the T-800's starting with the MMS117 have the long pegs.

There's someone in the uk selling a fully damaged full outfit body on eBay now, there also selling some accessories.
That or go with forbiddenplanet and buy a full set, I did the latter and sold off the extra stuff.

IMO the DX13 is the best overall Arnie fig HT have released, just ahead of TECK-NOIR Arnie.
Maybe the new BD T1 Arnie fig will smash the DX13 off top spot?

Personally I am a bigger fan of T1 then T2.

I assume broken. I just wonder if this one is a returned figure. Has some white spots on the leather like some were getting. I could live with that part, but this leg issue sucks. I contacted Sideshow so we will see.

yikes maybe that's the reason why we saw all of this exclusive ones all of a sudden. I don't think they can replace it for you since they are out of stock, maybe they'll give you a discount if you decide to keep it. They gave me 10% on not fulfilling my EX one. the good news is I can apply that 10% on ANY existing order so I placed it on my Batman armory :)

Sorry to hear that Jordan. I got mine today too and had my brother inspect the figure thoroughly. It was tough because he's not a collector and I had to tell him what to look for since I'm out of town. Hopefully, Sideshow will give you a refund and additional 10% for this. Did you get the exclusive or regular version? Mine was the exclusive.

Yeah, mine is the exclusive as well. I'm willing to bet this was a return because the cardboard pieces inside were already bent up like they were removed before. I really hope they have an extra body or something. If not I'll just return for refund and hopefully that 10% you mentioned. Good that yours is fine! He's fantastic.

Simply a must have! Even if I send it back, I'm tracking one of these babies down on here FAST.

If it isn't a break and just needs re-gluing and SS give you some money off, Id maybe keep it is just stick it back on.

You'll have to overpay for essentially the same figure and if there's nothing else wrong with it as far as you can see then it might save you some money. Just a thought

K1NG J0RDAN
08-19-2014, 12:36 AM
Yeah that's certainly an option. I'll see once SS responds tomorrow. Are the white spots on the pants supposed to be there for a wear effect? Mine have that slightly.

What glue is best for these figures?

Frank Jaeger

Okay. What type of glue should I use for the leg? I used gorilla glue on my neca 18" pacific rim figure's foot that came off and that worked fine, but unsure about that with this.

Frank Jaeger
08-19-2014, 01:52 AM
I use loctite superglue, the gel type

I've never had any problems with it and I've glued various different things with it

http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/08/19/papesyny.jpg

I know it's not really acceptable but it's just a solution if you don't wan't to spend more than you need to and if your happy with doing the minor fix. SS will probably give you a discount on an order

Glue it and take the credit. You have to ship it back to SSC on your dime. We've all had to glue pieces back together.

But it is your dime buddy. You do what is best for you and your collection. :duff

Superglue would probably just break again.

If I had that to do over again, I wouldn't do it. It's really easy to go a little too far (and really hard to judge when that's going to happen) and dull the steel-colored paint. Also if used on the overly red endo arm, all of the glue spots will turn white, and there are way more than you think. Also, I didn't dare go anywhere near the chest; Zod only knows what that **** does to Hot Toys rubber.
If you absolutely feel the NEED to do it, 91% Isopropyl alcohol and cue tips is what several of us used, but you've been warned.

Make sure that any accessories or clothing around the area are removed, as some superglues particularly those that contain cyanoacrylate tend to 'fog' the surrounding area if the fumes / vapor cannot easily escape. A two-part epoxy such as Gorilla does not tend to fog anything.

I curse HT for way overdoing the blood in the first place but I kind of agree. I definitely went too far on the chest of one of mine and exposed the black base plastic underneath in a small area. As for the heads, I worry that I've made them a little duller than they ideally would be.

in anycase i am not as fussy as you, so i was happy with both except for all the ketchup on the dx13 - damn that ketchup makes him very very red!

^Joints normally loosen with use anyway....I dunno, I wouldn't do anything about it.



I've just been trying to weather some DX13 clothes. Started with those weird blue boots using sandpaper. That created a contrast with the trousers so I took the sandpaper to those aswell. It looks good.....although I don't feel happy about having essentially 'damaged' my figures.

Oh and then I tried the sandpaper on one of my remaining figures with DX10 pants. It did a reasonable job there aswell, took that clean-sheen deep black look away, matches better with the MMS117 jacket I had on that particular figure. Again though, technically 'damaging' something. It doesn't sit well with me but it's done, no going back.

Although, i do collect multiples of terminator, cause ..... resistance is futile :) ...and one or two versions of every release is simply unavoidable. I do avoid entire lineups now though except terminator n dark knight... I have pulled the plugs on avengers, no GOTG for me and ironman (no way) except whiplash ...
